Tear Jerker / Drop the Dead Donkey

  • The finale, Medley Exit set "What Becomes Of the Broken Hearted?". While Dave, Henry, Sally, and Joy have happy endings (Helen gets a qualified happy ending, while Damien gets hit by Laser-Guided Karma), George abandons his chance of true love to look after his evil wife and even Gus is left completely alone in the ruins of his office having spent the best years of his life toadying to a man who can't even remember who he is.
  • Sally's miscarriage.
